The parts arrived next day from Parts Select even though I only had them shipped FedEx Ground and were an exact replacement for the OEM parts. It only took 5 minutes to remove the old parts and replace them with the new ones using a nut runner, lineman dikes, and two wire nuts. I had the repairs completed in 5 minutes but it was actually the compressor that was shot and not the relay and run capactor. End of the day the $60 I spent in parts was cheaper than the $500 quote the local appliance guy gave me and confirmed the same thing...fridge was dead and needed to be replaced. My wife it happy now that we have a new, larger, stainless fridge ;) Thank you Parts Select for quick service and exact fitting parts!
